Legal capacity to transact
By using this site, you confirm that you are over the age of 18 years. Should we suffer any damage or loss as a result of a transaction entered into by a minor, we reserve the right to seek compensation for such losses from his/her parents or guardians.
We sell guaranteed authentic luxury vintage and pre-loved items. We provide a Certificate of Authenticity on all handbags purchased at no additional cost via a third-party authentication service called Entrupy, a globally recognised authentication solution using artificial intelligence and microscopic computer vision to confirm the authenticity of high value designer items.
Entrupy uses state-of-the-art, scientifically proven software combined with expert authenticators to independently review and verify each item. They assess stitching, certificates, hardware, materials, serial numbers and codes, quality and other unique identifiers. The authenticity of every item we are selling is backed by a one-year Financial Guarantee. For more information, visit https://www.entrupy.com/entrupy-financial-guarantee. Any disputes relating to the authenticity of any item sold via our website should be directed to Entrupy.
Please note, in rare instances where we are unable to authenticate an item due to it not being supported by Entrupy, we utilise Luxury Authentication Australia to provide a Certificate of Authenticity.
Quality of Goods Sold
By purchasing goods from us, you understand that you are purchasing a vintage and/or pre-loved item. This means that our items have been previously owned by someone else, are in most cases used, and could be up to 50 years old.
You understand that stains, fading, visible scratching on hardware, and wear and tear will be present on items we sell, and given their age, may deteriorate more quickly than items that are brand new.
We take all these factors into account when pricing and advertising our products, and unless an item is materially and substantially not as described, we do not offer refunds for change of mind on any purchases (subject to our obligations under the Australian Consumer Law).
Please refer to the detailed description and photographs provided in respect of any goods you may wish to purchase and consider whether a vintage or pre-loved purchase is right for you. Manage your own expectations and refrain from purchasing an item from us if you are seeking a brand-new condition item as we only sell vintage or pre-loved goods, and you should be aware that the items will have visible signs of wear.
We grade the quality of our items as follows:
- Pristine: Mint condition, like new.
- Excellent: Very good lightly used condition, minimal flaws.
- Good: Visible flaws and signs of wear.
- Fair: Obvious signs of wear, very visible flaws.
While we have made every attempt to show textures, appearances and colours of our items as accurately as possible, product images may vary from the delivered product depending on your monitor, settings and computer equipment.
